I could see the benefits of sitting on top of the engine if mowing grass in Oct through Mar.
I wonder if they copyrighted those words?

Only if you have a lot of time to kill. . .      and you don't let the grass get too tall.

Do you own that one?

No I wish I did.

 

Every time someone post a unique tractor or anything on a message forum I feel inclined to go search the internet for information and pictures of said unique item.  That way when I am at a tractor show, yard sale, flea market, or swap meet I can see an item and be like OHH!! that is a haymaker tractor.  They used to advertise those as the "finest" riding mower ever built!  Then people look at me like I am crazy.....

Neat old mower! At least it has a horizontal shaft engine and 6hp would have been plenty for a 32" cut if you kept the speed reasonable.

Wow!  $600 for that was quite expensive for the day.

 

Heck $600 would be expensive for that in today's dollars.

If that ad was from 1950....

 

What cost $600 in 1950 would cost $5730.38 in 2013.

 

If 1960

 

What cost $600 in 1960 would cost $4656.66 in 2013.

 

That is according to the inflation calculator at http://www.westegg.com/inflation/
